Thematics of the ancient tragedy were drawn from the rich legacy of Greek mythology and concerned the achievements of gods and heroes of prehistoric times. In particular, a large part of Greek mythology concerned the relationship between gods and heroes and their action, offering indirect reasons for the origin of religious rituals. The central theme of Greek mythology was the action of humans in relation to the gods. The object of this paper is the function of the divine influence in the work of Euripides and the way in which the tragic heroes deal with the divine intervention. First, using specific excerpts from the two works Iphigenia in Aulid and Iphigenia in Taurus we will refer to the divine intervention. Next, we will show how tragic heroes deal with divine intervention.
